    hey all. Anyone else having probelms with orcon mail. I got one of
    those life time free email accounts some time ago and just in the last
    week or two, well, today I got 47 emails. In a 14 hour period.
    something wrong with their spam filters ? Or did I get sloppy with my
    email address?.

    Spam levels have notably increased in the last 6 weeks or so.
    Haven't heard why.

    That said, what do you want for free ? :)
